The enemies of equality are fascinated by the more extreme examples of gay sexual expression. They insist that homosexuality and monogamy are incompatible. They sneak into gay leather events like the Folsom Street Fair to take pictures, which they post to Christian websites. They appear on cable news to insist that all gay men consume feces. Gays and lesbians counter these accusations by insisting that we're not that different, that straight people are kinky too, that lots of gay people are monogamous.
But you know what? They're right: Gay sex is totally fucking nuts.
Something about being gay facilitates the kinds of sexual adventures that our enemies can only dream about. Our struggle for equal rights under the law—for workplace protections, for an end to the ban on gays in the military, for marriage equality (same-sex marriage is now legal in six states)—is succeeding. Many Americans now see queers as no big deal, normal, almost boring. Which is why the religious right is working to shift the focus back to the dirtiest details of our sex lives. And honestly... our sex lives are insane. We know the real reason they're gathering in church basements to share photos taken at Folsom: They're jealous. We're having a blast, and it's killing them.
